This customization allows for a secure and personalized fit. The Flextend technology used in this Hollister skin barrier provides an extended wear time and enhances durability.

How to Use Hollister Ostomy Skin Barrier?

Preparation before using Hollister New Image Skin Barrier

1. Measure the stoma using a stoma measuring guide before every barrier application (if using a pre-sized barrier opening, go to step 4).

Measuring the stoma size
 
2. Trace the determined barrier size opening onto the skin barrier. It should fit where the skin and stoma meet. Verify that no skin is showing between the skin barrier and the stoma to help prevent leakage and skin irritation.

3. Using small curved scissors, carefully cut an opening in the skin barrier to match the pattern. Do not cut beyond the line on the release liner.

4. Remove the release liner from the skin barrier. Set aside with adhesive facing up.

How to apply?

  • Minimize the amount of touching or contact with the barrier prior to application
  • Once applied to the skin, the barrier adhesion will improve with heat. Enhance the adherence of the skin barrier by using a hand or fingers to hold the skin barrier in contact with the skin for 30 to 60 seconds.
  • The flexibility of the barrier can be improved by warming prior to application. This can be accomplished by holding the barrier before removing the release paper or film. Do not microwave skin barriers.

Wear Time

  • Wear time is defined as the length of time a product can be worn before failure
  • Failure is usually the result of barrier erosion or separation of the barrier from the skin
  • Wear time can vary widely based on factors such as skin condition, discharge consistency, activity, and climate
  • The goal is to provide predictable and consistent wear time

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What is an ostomy skin barrier?

    An ostomy skin barrier is a protective layer that prevents infection around the sensitive stoma site. A stoma is a surgically created opening in the body used to excrete urine and bowel to ensure good health of your ostomy.

  2. How often do you change the ostomy skin barrier?

    You must change the skin barrier every three days, i.e., twice a week. Ensure you replace the pouch before it leaks or pulls apart from your skin.

  3. Can you irrigate the stoma daily?

    Yes, you can irrigate your colostomy at the same time every day. It will help you to train your bowel to function. It can help you stay drainage-free for a day or two. It would be best to irrigate within an hour of a meal.

  4. How often should an ostomy pouch be emptied?

    An Ostomy pouch should be emptied six to eight times a day. Don't wait for the bag to be filled. Empty the bag when it is 1/3 full. A full bag can lead to leakage.
